Dell PowerScale Storage Solutions

Dell PowerScale scale-out storage solutions are powerful, yet simple to scale and manage, no matter how large your unstructured data environment becomes. Unlike traditional storage, PowerScale solutions are flexible, efficient and stay simple regardless of how much storage capacity and performance is required, or how your business needs change. PowerScale integrates easily with a choice of cloud services and, with built-in data analytics support, allows you to unlock the value from your data to accelerate the digital transformation of your business.



Inline compression and data deduplication software enhances storage efficiency to reduce your physical storage requirements by up to 35%. A policy-based, automated tiering option allows you to optimise storage resources and further lower costs.



Powered by the OneFS operating system, Isilon all-flash storage supports all major protocols and data access methods. This means that you can support a wide range of unstructured data applications and workloads on a single storage platform.


Data Protection

All-flash platforms are highly resilient and offers N+1 through N+4 redundancy. With OneFS you may also choose from a variety of efficient and proven enterprise data backup and disaster recovery options.



All-flash platforms offer a broad range of robust security options including FIPS 140-2 level 2 self-encrypting drives, role-based access control (RBAC), secure access zones and file system auditing support.

Dell PowerScale storage solutions are designed for enterprises that want to manage their data, not their storage. The storage systems are powerful yet simple to install, manage, and scale to virtually any size. The storage includes a choice of all-flash, hybrid or archive nodes to meet the most demanding business needs.

The PowerScale family of all-flash nodes - powered by OneFS - can drive workloads at the edge, in the datacentre or in the cloud. These nodes are available in a cost-effective all-flash form factor which deliver blazing performance and up to 93PB capacity to address the needs of the workloads of today and tomorrow. PowerScale is well suited to store and manage your unstructured data across all industries and vertical markets for use cases like big data analytics, HPC, safety and security and genomics.
